I finally found a 3.75" Black Series Deathtrooper today.  A very refreshing turn of events, since they've been so scarce compared to the Jyn Erso from this wave.  I think the one that I got was stashed, but got discovered and placed back on the pegs.  Because when I got it there were no Jyn's or ERG's to be found.

I picked up an ERG, Deathtrooper Specialist and FO Stormtrooper today.  And I was also very surprised to see the 3.75" Black Series Vader turning up in stores again. 

Considering how much of wave 4 that I saw in stores today, I think Vader may have come from those cases, because I have not seen reports of him turning up in the wave 5 or 6 cases.  It might make sense to get an SA version of Vader back in circulation again considering his role in ROGUE ONE, but it's too bad that the 3.75" Black Series version is from TESB/ROTJ and not ANH.

Yeah, curious distribution on these.  I found the wave with Vader, along with FO Stormtrooper, Luke, Kylo, Leia, Old Han, Phasma, etc.  a week or two ago as well. Weird to see them shipping almost on top of the Ahsoka/ERG/Jyn/Deathtrooper case.

Those hit here right before the RO wave hit...  Not the best timing here on that one. :(

Was out on a road trip for business in Central CA today and decided to hit up a few Walmarts in some rural areas on my way back home...  Proved to be worth the effort as I came across the 3.75" Black Series Scariff Storm Trooper and Cassian Andor figures at two stores in Patterson and Los Banos, CA.  Plenty more left.  They also had plenty of the Jyn Erso, Death Trooper, Admiral Ackbar, Lando, Rey, Han Solo (ROTJ), and General Leia (TFA) figures, as well as a smattering of those left from earlier waves like Finn, Poe Dameron, etc.  Was elated to find the Rouge One 3.75" figures and got multiples of them.  One of the best Star Wars hauls I've had in a while actually  ;D

Nice haul. I truly believe the 3.75" Deathtrooper and Jyn are two of the best figures Hasbro has ever made.

Nice haul indeed...  Wish I'd found those myself haha.  I'm just now catching a sniff of the initial RO offerings here...  Found a few Death Troopers and quite happy as they're really a nice figure.

Found that "Greatest Hits" wave today while picking up some stuff after work, including my first in-person sighting of TFA Han, Leia, and Phasma (got mine originally from Jesse James). Grabbed a second Han and Phasma, and I want to at least try to customize the Han into a SA "regular" TFA Han.

Good fodder...  I think Phasma with a cloth coat would look badass too.

Good idea, though that's a fine figure as it is.

Hardest part for Han will be finding a torso that will look accurate enough... and swapping the ball jointed legs.

The 2nd Carbonite Han might work

We just got inundated with the E7 Han wave unfortunately. I did however pick up two stormtroopers completing a squad.

Luckily I found enough Deathtroopers to pacify me for now.

I hit the jackpot today and found Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, Death Troopers and a Scarif Shore Trooper.  I picked up two death troopers and left one, but took the only Shore Trooper they had.

No ERGs to be found.  He's still a hot commodity.
